Question:

big steel drum grill?

my step father bought a big steel drum grill it has steel sheets (very thin) that go inbetween the flame and the food (closer to the flame) with that there the food will not cook, it does not get hot enough????? please help... what should we do

Answer:

You said Big steel drum. When you cook on this big steel drum are you cooking little amounts of food? This may be why you cannot cook it right. If you are using it correctly the barrel should be filled with right amount of charcoal so it heats up to its capacity. Also keep the lid closed when cooking it keeps the heat in.

This type of grill cooks like an oven You have to keep the lid shut until the proper temp. is reached. Then place you meats and stuff on the grill and close the lid. Open the lid infrequently to keep the heat in. If its charcoal make sure you use enough charcoal the first time so you don't have to add any while you food is cooking.

that steel plate there is to try to keep the grease dripping of the food from making the grill flame up and burning the food. most all quality grills have something similar. you can take the plate out but your going to be prone to flame ups.

yes that keeps the fat from dripping on the burners - just try it - it works.
